Need a new EP for Abbott Device
How do we find a new EP for an Abbott device? Really unhappy with current situation.
Made to wait 6 weeks after original insert procedure resulted in an atrial lead that detached 10 minutes after surgery. Second lead set to 40 bpm while we wait. Foggy, tired, and confused why the wound had to "heal" 6 weeks.
Medicare fraud has be suggested. Hospitals are penalized for readmissions less than 30 days. Sigh.
Trust is lost. Current EP knows we are angry and won't return phone calls even. Need a new one.
You know you're wired when...
You know the difference between hardware and software.
The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
